A woman who reached for her lipgloss in the middle of the night got a nasty surprise when she realised her mouth was glued shut.

She had instead covered her lips in super glue.

Police said the Dunedin woman called them for help overnight, but because her mouth had been glued shut, it sounded like she had been gagged.

When police arrived at the woman's house they realised what had happened and called for an ambulance.

Ambulance staff were able to clear the woman's sticky situation without her requiring hospital treatment.
